Day 44 - Rainy Day in Bullhead City

It has been raining here since last night. Not continuously or heavy. We went into Bullhead City to take the dogs into a Petsmart to be cleaned up. Since both of these dogs don't shed, they need to get regular haircuts. We were surprised by the amount of snow on the mountains surrounding the area. Not quite sure of the elevation snow but it's pretty low. Maybe a couple of thousand feet. Given the snow all over AZ and Nevada as the map from the AccuWeather site shows, I guess we shouldn't be surprised. I should have taken a picture of the snowy mountains but any time I saw a nice view, we were driving.

What did surprise me is the amount of solar that we received. I guess it must've cleared up right around noon as the graph indicates that the current from the panels peaked around 22 amps. It looked pretty overcast in Bullhead City. The battery bank only made it up to 94% from this mornings reading of 88%. But the furnace was coming on frequently as it barely made it into the 50's (°F). A little too cold for the pool.

We had lunch at Colianno's Italian Restaurant in Bullhead City. The lasagna wasn't quite as good as Gambredella's in Fairbanks but it was better than decent. The dog grooming took around three hours so lunch and grocery shopping were on today's agenda.

  2. Dogs getting a haircut, never thought of this. Do they get a perm or another colour, too?

    1. The Petsmart had "spa packages" for your dog. We didn't opt for any...

    2. Sonja. These dogs have hair, not fur. One is a schnauzer/poodle mix. Breeds with hair are less likely to cause allergies, and they don't shed. That is why they need to get hair cuts every other month.

  3. Seems like the weather in the southwest this year has been well below normal. Hopefully it turns around for you soon.

    1. At least is hasn't snowed here. I've seen pictures of all of the other places in AZ where we stayed with snow sticking to the ground.

  4. Sounds like getting the dogs groomed was a good excuse to go out for Italian and do some shopping. Sorry your weather hasn't been better. Been an odd winter for the west.

    1. Any excuse for Italian food. The dogs need regular haircuts anyway. I’m told that this winter has had really odd weather.
